HeroesCon is a little over a week away! This is, without doubt, my favorite show, and I hope you'll get a chance to come out. Think you might have trouble finding me? Not with this lil' map:

(click for full-sized version) That's right. We don't even need table numbers. 'Cause we're the BEST BLOCK. Anybody else think their table block is better?

In addition to getting new books, artwork, and goodies at the table, you can also see me at the following panels/workshops: Friday at 5pm: COMICS CANON We discuss what comics should and shouldn't be included in a comics canon. Be prepared to be shocked at what formerly esteemed comics I throw under the bus, and my reasons for doing so! Leave convinced! Sunday at 11am: INCREDIBLE ALL-AGES PANEL Jill Thompson, Roger Langdridge, Skottie Young, and Me (apparently, I'm hosting) talk about all-ages comics. Sunday at 2:30pm: PITCHING GRAPHIC NOVELS "Getting a publisher interested in your graphic novel is no easy task, but with the right information you'll be in a better position to do so. Chris Schweizer "The Crogan Adventures) will go over the principles of finding the right publisher, preparing a submission packet, and avoiding the problems that cause promising books to be overlooked."

As Jeff Parker says in a very nice post, "Set aside an hour and read it." • Audio Interview on WAR ROCKET AJAX, the Comics Alliance podcast • EYE ON COMICS reviews Crogan's LoyaltyCOMIC BOOKED review Crogan's LoyaltyKLEEFELD ON COMICS reviews Crogan's LoyaltyBACK TO BOOKS reviews Crogan's LoyaltyHopkinsville New Era newspaper article: Former Hopkinsville resident returns for book signing, workshopTV feature on a workshop I did in Indiana (NBC 14) I also did a radio interview (WKMS), but I don't think it's been posted online.
